Dreams

in winter
dreams survive until mid-day

look up

see them as you pass
suffocating
pressed against the window-glass

Evening

the Ford Mondeo
sings
softly treads across the garage floor
listen
as the robin hesitates
and stars hang in the sycamores

Place des L[ces St. Tropez

I pray for the chickens on the spit
whip cicadas into a frenzy over it
then watch them sweat as they turn
for chicken sins
they couldn't have commit

St. Tropez Evening

on calm nights
where the quayside lights don't quite reach

the water's bosom swells
lifts and falls

it's only the sounds of boatsleep
there against the harbour wall

A square in Rome

in Piazza Majore
we wait in a doorway
slightly bemused on a hypotenuse

for our friends who are there
from much lesser squares

as one of them scholarly
leads in a corollary

In Time

waiting for


in hope not expectation
and outside
that window in a wall
things rush by
to another set
another script

soon
you'll put down your cup
think nothing of it


you to

Abutterfly In Gion-Kyoto

with small steps
in the narrow lane
so tight her wings
another Spring

looks up
with chalk-white face
she's never meant to fly
and cherry-blossoms hesitate
in Gion there's a slate-grey sky

A bit-part at the audition

the asp
lay at the breast of
another Cleopatra look-alike

disconcerted
by the lack of poison
at the back of his throat

he wondered
what had befallen the Ass

since
the biting
came after te bathing

Angels in Paris

Angels came in low
haversacks for their wings
at each corner of the square

admired their plate-glass reflections
and only by the way they flew
pigeons from the tower of Saint Germain
seemingly aware

A Little God

encased inside his chrysalis
ate beanshoots prunes and cod
hung on for millenia
that embryonic god

he found outside somanya
miracles were required
he stocked-up with lasagnia
and chose to stay inside
